I've just setup a 301 redirect from pages on an old domain to a new one.
When I check the headers, I get a 301 OK but it reads:
"HTTP Status Code: HTTP/1.1 301 Error"
Searching at Google brings up lots of examples of this, seems to be a IIS thing (I'm stuck with it, can't switch to Apache).
But, will the search engines read this message or care? Some think they won't, other say this stopped their new site getting crawled.
That bugged me for the longest time (when we were using IIS for 301s) because I wanted to be in line with the specification. I've since switched to ISAPI_Rewrite and use the facilities in that program to handle all 301s.
